iOS 7 whiteout: Will the future be bleached?

Last year, after Twitterrific 5 launched, I loved the pure, Vader black look so much I changed my wallpaper to get the full-on blackout look. Then, in June of this year, Apple showed off iOS 7 and it was, for the most part, whiter than Storm Trooper white. Now, Twitterrific 5 has updated with a...

From twit to tweet: How Twitterrific helped Twitter get its verb - and bird - on

Last week the word "tweet" was added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Craig Hockenberry, a principle of the Iconfactory, co-creator of Twitterrific, and iMore hall of famer, gave some background as to its origins on his blog, Furbo.org:

Twitterrific 5 updated with tweet muffling, iCloud sync, and more

Twitterrific, the original and yet most modern Twitter app on iOS, has updated to version 5.1 and with it comes a bevy of new features. You get muffling of #hashtags and domains, and you can tap on a muffled tweet to peek at it. Settings are now synced across your devices thanks to iCloud integration, and support has been added for img.ly, mobypicture, and twitpic. If you're on iOS 6, you also get Avenir as a font choice. There are even more improvements and enhancements as well.

Thou shalt have no brand before Twitter

Tweetbot just updated to support Twitter's 1.1 API, and to partially support Twitter's new interface display guidelines. Come March 5, the old version of the app will stop working, and if you want to keep accessing Twitter, you'll have to do it with the new app, with it's new, more standardized look. Tweetbot won't be alone. Right now, every Twitter app designer is likely wrestling with the same problem -- how to conform to Twitter's new guidelines without losing what makes their app distinct, how to compromise without sacrificing what makes them special.

Twitterrific 5.0.2 brings new image and link handling, retweet gesture, simple reading, and more!

Judge not the Twitterrific 5.0.2 update by its point size. More than just the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks lie within. The Iconfactory has added inline image previews that, when tapped upon, launch a new, chrome-less image viewer that still lets you pinch to zoom and long press to get additional options. You also get the new full screen browser and simple reading modes, including Instapaper and Readability, and a new gesture to re-tweet with comment -- just tap and hold the re-tweet button.

Hall of fame: Craig Hockenberry, Gedeon Maheux, and Twitterrific

Twitterrific was the first native social networking client on the iPhone. Created by Craig Hockenberry and Gedeon Maheux of the Iconfactory, it began as the Mobile Twitterrific project in August of 2007, only two short months after the original iPhone shipped, and well before Apple announced even the plan for an official SDK. Development started "in the open", with a proof-of-concept made available on Google Project Hosting.

Twitterrific 5 brings breathtaking new design, vicious new speed to Twitter for iPhone and iPad

Twitterrific is the Star Trek of iOS. Not only is it the original, but more than any other app, it has proven its ability to re-invent and re-invigorate itself, over and over again, from one generation to the next. From the Jailbreak days before the App Store to now, post Twitter API crackdowns, post-iPhone 5 and iPad mini, the Iconfactory, and with the team of Sean Heber, David Lanham, Craig Hockenberry, Gedeon Maheux, Tyler Anderson, and Cheryl Culling have continually moved Twitterrific forward while never losing what made it great to begin with. Old and yet new, simple and yet deep, Twitterrific 5 is startlingly beautiful and viciously fast, and represents nothing more or less than a re-imagining of the app and the genre.

On the future of Twitter: Developer reactions

I've already had my rant, as have John Gruber, Matthew Panzarino, Lex Friedman, M.G. Siegler, Jerry Hildenbrand, Benjamin Brooks, Shawn Blanc, and many others across the blogsphere. Which is good, because tech bloggers, especially Apple and mobile tech bloggers, tend to be monster Twitter users (and not the automated social media marketing types -- actual heavy-duty users the type of which helped spin up the service to begin with.) Yet we, like any user, will be challenged only so far as the apps we use to engage Twitter are challenged, and those apps are made by developers, and those developers are at the front lines.

So what are the Twitter developers saying? Here are some excerpts and links back, and I'll add more as I find them.

Best Twitter apps to grab now before Twitter closes their doors

Twitter has announced user token limits for 3rd party Twitter apps which means that, one day, they'll no longer be able to accept new users. It won't be today, or tomorrow, or perhaps even for a year or more. But it will happen, and if Twitter changes things again, it could happen sooner rather than later.

So to get in and get your tokens now, and to support the developers who have devoted their time, money, sweat, tears, and blood into making better experiences than Twitter themselves were willing to or were capable of, grab one these apps now. If you want some real fun, grab all of them.

Tweetbot vs. Twitterrific vs. Twitter: iPad twitter app shootout!

The darling of hardcore iPhone twitter users comes to the iPad, but how does Tweetbot measure up on the big screen compared to Twitterrific and Twitter's own app?

Twitter may not be as big a social network as Facebook, but you can't turn on a television, let alone visit a website, without seeing an endless stream of @usernames and #hashtags. While smartphones are great for Twitter on the go, the iPad is perfect for sitting back and really getting engaged. But which Twitter app for iPad is the best to engage with? Not only do you have Twitterrific, the original iOS Twitter app, but you have Twitter's official Twitter for iPad app, and now you have Tweetbot to consider as well, one of the most popular iPhone Twitter apps, just released for the iPad.

We've often said iOS and Twitter and like chocolate and peanut butter, two great tastes that taste even better together. And it's true. Time after time, platform after platform, the best developers and designers always seem to gravitate towards making Twitter clients, and nothing proves that more than Twitterrific, Twitter, and Tweetbot.

So which one is best, or more importantly, which one is best for you?
